Sažetak
The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of body weight on fitness tests among the personnel of the Croatian navy. Forty two naval personnel (age 27 ± 4.1 years ; body mass 86.2 ± 4.9 kg ; height 184.6 ± 7.4 cm ; body fat percentage 17.3 ±5.2) participated in this study. In order to evaluate the fitness of the naval servicemen, we applied a testing procedure that included measurements of 7 fitness tests and 15 body anthropometric tests. A negative correlation was found between the body fat percentage and all the analyzed sprint tests and three anaerobic power tests (r), SP5 (r = -0.42), SP10 (r = -0.51), SP20 (r = -0.53), SJ (r = -0.45), CM (r = -0.57), SLJ (r = -0.67). Also a negative correlation was found between the body fat percentage and VO2max (r = - 0.44). A positive correlation was found between the sprint test (r) ( SP5 = 0.34), SP10 = 0.41 and SP20 = 0.45) and the power performance test (SJ = 0.51 ; CM = 0.42 ; SLJ = 0.56) and thigh and calf girth (r) ( SP5 = 0.33 ; SP10 = 0.31 and SP20 = 0.35 ; SJ = 0.31 ; CM = 0.32 ; SLJ = 0.36). Spiriting ability is influenced by the strength of a person. This is one of the reasons why we found a positive correlation between the sprint test (SP5, SP10 and SP20) and thigh and calf girth. In this study we found a negative correlation between body fat percentages and all the sprint tests and three anaerobic power tests and VO2max. According to the body composition of Croatian naval servicemen we can conclude that they need a sufficient level of strength and endurance for everyday tasks. The effectiveness of a weight-management program is determined by the success of the participants in losing the necessary amount of weight and being able to maintain that weight loss. This requires long-term tracking of these individuals in a naval environment.
